No different than aircraft. You can't fly a C-172 (a four seater) with 4 full size adults and full fuel in most cases.

I agree, from what I've seen, it all boils down to whether you like the looks of the new one or not, which I don't.

Doesn't look like it. It's definitely still a well defined couple (the back camo hides the detail but you can still see the slope), and the front grill appears to be pretty much intact.
